Custom Sheaths by Bay State Leather Co.
The best wilderness survival gear on the market!
Backyard campers and Rambo wannabe's... go buy a Bear Grylls kit. When you get serious about your wilderness activities... come see my gear. Hikers, mountain bikers, cross country skiers, ATV'ers, off-roaders, and others whose activities carry them far and wide... discriminating outdoorsmen opt for quality gear.
Here's a collection of pictures of some of the really nice sheaths that were done for me recently by Bruce S. Nicely over at Bay State Leather Co.
While he did this run, he made forms of the production blades. What this means is that if you own one of these blades and want a really nice hand-tooled leather sheath from Bruce... YOU DON'T NEED TO SEND YOUR BLADE!!! I'll start a list of the production knives he can sheath without sending your blade. Of course he can sheath pretty much anything if you don't mind sending the blade to him. His prices are great as well.
So far he has forms for the Scrap Yard Dogfather, Scrap Yard Dumpster Mutt, Cold Steel Trailmaster, Busse FFBM, Busse Outlaw, and more.

Of course, Bruce can do Lefty models from his forms. Here's the same double rig in lefty, and with an added ferrocerium rod holder:
...and a side view showing how surprisingly slim the whole rig is!
Busse FFBM sheathed in an AMBIDEXTROUS antique brown leather sheath with external pouch for survival gear... NICE!
Probably my favorite rig to date. A dangler* style sheath with an external pouch for ferrocerium rod and Gerber tool. This great
sheath fits both my Dogfather and my Cold Steel San Mai Trailmaster, and is AMBIDEXTROUS! (the cord wrapping is mine).
*Dangler style refers to the metal loop from which the rig dangles. This allows the sheath to pivot as you move, stand, sit, etc!
Let's open her up!
Tools, tools and tools!
As I've mentioned, Bruce is a great guy to deal with. What's perhaps even more important, I trust him enough to hand over
about a thousand dollars worth of blades to be sheathed at a time. Check out his work at:
